PhD Positions in Dynamic Behavior of Materials

Leslie Lamberson's picture

The Dynamic Multifunctional Materials Laboratory at Drexel University in Philadelphia is currently looking for up to 5 graduate students for new research projects on high rate mechanics of materials in 2018.  Positions can start as soon as this summer, or the in the fall.

Interested applicants should send their materials to Professor Leslie Lamberson at, as well as apply to Drexel’s graduate PhD program in Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics at

We are currently looking for highly motivated students to perform experimental and theoretical studies related to high rate mechanics of materials.  We often conduct complementary FE modeling and microscopy, as needed for main efforts.  Particular projects available include: microstructure to performance investigations on metal-ceramic nanolayered materials (MAX phases), environmental-mechanical loading on laminate polymer matrix composites, slip-twin interaction of high entropy alloys, coupled electromechanical investigations of ferroelectric ceramics, dynamic fracture of tailored matrix polymers, and polymer foam investigations for next generation helmet liners to migtigate TBI.  Students must possess a B.S. degree in Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or relevant field; however preference is given to those applying whom already have a MS degree.

The following materials are required for application: (1) CV (2) Transcript (3) GRE Scores (4) x3 References (1 letter of recommendation encouraged) (5) 100 word statement of interest (and TOFEL scores for international students).
